Loddon Valley Link


jane4Welcome to the August edition of the Loddon Valley Link. It's certainly a busy summer!

The centre pages feature Sherfest! which has just happened as I write. It was clearly a great success with many people attending, and is the sort of event which is great for getting people together. Another such event was the Hartley Wespall regatta, and much fun was clearly had by all there too.
There are plenty of events coming up too over the rest of the summer. Those at Sherfield Village Hall include the Show on 1st September, the Beer Festival on 7th September, and the Last Night of the Proms on 14th September.aug19 contents
Sherfield Park Community Centre has a pub night on 9th August, outdoor cinema on 6th September, and its own Proms concert on 24th September.
As announced last month Loddon Valley Link is once again running a competition for great photos which we can use on the cover of the magazine; there is a reminder of the details in the magazine this month (p. 28).
Loddon Valley Link is also offering, as last year, grants to local community groups. Details of how to apply and conditions are on p. 36.
On a more serious note, Cllr Venetia Rowland updates us on the proposed development in Goddards Lane (Sherfield on Loddon). Gladman Developments is once again appealing the decision to refuse planning permission - it has already been refused three times. This is an emotive local issue; we are all concerned about the development, and whether this can be done without losing the essential character of the area. Cllr Rowland describes the background to this appeal, and also explains how, if you are opposed to the proposal, you can express your support for the campaign against it.
